What is the therapeutic management of thalamic bleed? This is the question I have been commonly asked by most of the students and therapists.
Instead of answering their question I ask them a question. What are the signs & symptoms of the patients?
I always keep in mind that we as therapists don’t treat the cause of the stroke like the medical management. We plan our management according to the signs and symptoms of the patients and the needs of the patients according to their lifestyle, age and occupational demand. We don’t plan treatment directly with the causative factors of the stroke. In the end, we have to treat the hemiplegia or hemianesthesia. In thalamic bleed we see the loss of sensation on the side of hemiplegia that will affect the rehabilitation & sensory feedback. This in turn will directly affect the motor learning.
